Smoked bison steak

Smoked bison steak

My butcher called me and told me about a steak that he had that you could cut with a fork. It wasn’t beef but bison. I had to try it.
Bison is very lean meat and is a lot sweeter than beef, for example. It also has some health benefits, so that’s another plus. I smoked it with a nice dry rub crust.
